So here is a new experiment. I began learning about astrology some time ago and I’ve really enjoyed following up what goes on in the sky. Now, I feel like taking it into the next level! I want to start interpreting whatever is happening in my own way, see what comes up! Maybe we can all learn something about these readings and make use of the energy available.
Above is a picture of how the sky will look like tomorrow (June 23rd) when the moon conjuncts the sun and becomes a New Moon in the second degree of Cancer at 8:30 pm in Bogotá, Colombia. Depending on where you are in the world the New Moon may happen the 24th of June instead.
The New Moon is a phase for introspection that allows us to plan and sow our desires and intentions. These days right before the New Moon are amazing for letting go of stuff that doesn’t serve us anymore in order to create space in our minds and hearts for the new intentions that we will be working on for the next month. The moon is at home when in Cancer, therefore our emotions are being exalted and we will identify very much with them.
There is also a gradual accumulation of energy in the cardinal signs of the zodiac (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). The Cardinal energy is about moving forward and initiating new projects, therefore this upcoming season will be great to cultivate and work for our desires once we clear our space for our New Moon intentions.
Additionally, there’s a stellium in the sign of Cancer right now involving the Sun, Mercury, Mars and soon the moon will be joining. This means that a lot of energy is being held in the Cancer area of our charts. Cancer represents the sense of home, our family and our past. In general we are being invited to rejoin with that sense of home that is more a feeling than a place. Anywhere you are in your life, no matter how uncomfortable your situation is, you must always be able to recognize that “home” is a feeling and therefore we are always able to come home. What makes you feel like home? Certain food, certain aromas or maybe treating yourself somehow? Writing, singing, drawing? Whatever it is don’t forget to do it if possible every day in your life. Your home ignites your sense of stability and we many times need to feel stable in order to make big changes in our lives and expand our comfort zone (our sense of home).
I’ve sensed that during this New Moon, habits that are stopping us from recognizing and working in our inner home are coming to surface. This has to do with the Cancer energy of our past; what kind of home we had as we were growing up. Maybe we learned habits or ways of thinking that don’t promote the true sense of home and therefore they are showing up now in order for us to release them and live more accordingly to who we truly are. Saturn will be opposing the Moon reminding her that the way she feels is important but it’s not her absolute truth. She must act, feel and think accordingly to what she wants to bring into her world and this requires self-work. I’ve come to learn that is not only how we think we are or how we want to be, in order to be whom we truly want to be we have to commit and do the work.
In general terms, this is a very soft energy filled with need for nourishment. Let’s nourish ourselves and those around us. Let’s appreciate those who make us feel at home and let’s take charge for our own wellbeing. Happy days, new beginnings and self-care to you all!
PS: Make sure to tune into your intentions tomorrow. State them clearly and plan ahead how are you going to make them happen. Make use of your exalted emotions and imagine yourself already having what you want. Last, meditate and be grateful for all that is and will be ❋.
